The Real City that Never Sleeps. Ever. | Barcelona, Spain
So our flight was delayed because of a workers’ strike in Italy. We didn’t get to our hostel in Barcelona til 4 AM, and let me tell you… the streets were still filled with people; young, loud, and noisy people. We did stay in one of the most famous hostels, located in the center of everything.
Barcelona was something else. If I could study abroad again, I would study there. It definitely surprised me with it’s modern design and chill vibes. I stayed 6 days, so I was really able to explore the city. I was a 5 minute walk from La Boqueria, one of the major markets, so I ate fresh fruit everyday. The weather was good enough to lay out on the beach. I biked two days in a row because I loved biking around the city that much. It was bliss. I had to ask for 2 extra maps because my maps fell apart since I used them too much. Antoni Gaudi is genius, and I must say the Pablo Picasso museum and the Cathedral were probably some of my favorites. (& I have been to a lot… a lot… of museums and cathedrals.) Did not expect to fall in love with Barcelona as much as I did.
